Can I use my EPPIC debit card or Way2Go debit card to pay for fuel at the pump?

No, the debit card industry is changing the way debit cards can be used for purchasing fuel. Pay at the pump will no longer be allowed for debit cards. Debit card users will need to pay for their fuel inside the station or kiosk. The industry change is due to the hold that occurs when a consumer uses a debit card to purchase fuel and pays at the pump. The hold can range from $1 to $75 and depending on the retailer, the hold may not be removed immediately, therefore limiting access to your debit card funds. Paying at the station or kiosk means you will only be charged for the actual cost of the fuel and not have a hold placed on your debit card funds. This is a change for all debit card users.

What happens when a customer enrolled in the Wisconsin Way2Go Debit MasterCard dies?

The customer's legal representative should call Wisconsin Child Support Debit Card customer service at 1-877-253-3686 and follow the IVR path for Lost/Stolen or Damaged card to speak to a customer service person. The legal representative will need to provide specific documents to Go Program in order to prove their legal right to these funds.

What should I do if my Wisconsin Way2Go Debit MasterCard or EPPIC Debit MasterCard is lost or stolen?

You should call Wisconsin Child Support Debit Card customer service at 1-877-253-3686 and listen closely to the IVR, following the path to report a lost or stolen card.
